About Jennifer W Tanner
Jennifer W Tanner purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Jennifer W Tanner chose South Patrick Shores
1. Convenient location to Orlando - only an hour drive and most of which is interstate highway 2. Convenient location to central Florida attractions - only an hour drive to Disney and Universal parks and only a half hour to Kennedy Space center. 3. Not your typical Florida east coast Florida beach - peace and quiet because of limited public access and nearly 8 miles of protected beaches to the north. 4. Spectacular view - an incredible view of the ocean, sand and pool from every room in the condo.
What makes this Condo unique
It is unlike any other location on the east cost. Sandpiper Towers is located directly south of Patrick Air Force Base (less than a .25 mile). The entire beach along the air force base is protected, nearly 8 miles, so it makes for a peaceful and relaxing vacation. It is very different from what is typically advertised for Florida beaches such as Cocoa or Daytona. There are no crowds or cars driving on the beach, so if you are looking for peace and quite, this is definitely the spot. At the same time it is conveniently located to local shoping and dining, as well a short 8 mile drive to Cocoa if you want to see some of the local attractions or 7 miles to Melbourne if you want to experience one of the local trendy shopping areas.

We have stayed at several vacation homes and would agree that this was our least favorite. The view is wonderful and if your goal is to stay right on the ocean, this would be it! We had two couples staying and flipped the coin as to who got the master. Unfortunately, my husband and I were shimmying in and out of bed every night because it was a tight fit in the second bedroom. It seems to me this property is for those on a budget or trying to fit a larger group in at a low cost.
Although parts of the condo have been renovated, it’s not a very high-quality job. Quite a bit of paint was peeling in the bathroom and the Master shower drained very slowly. Certainly it’s nothing that you can’t handle for a few days. However, it’s just not all that impressive.
Also the contract for staying and expectations for check out were by far the most intensive of any of the homes we’ve ever stayed in. Understandably the owners need to make sure their property is being kept up well. It seems they must’ve had some bad experiences with others in the past.
You could never be anonymous to me, I value and remember all of our guests who stay! I am so glad you enjoyed the view offered by our condo and felt that we were extremely close to the ocean. We are right on the ocean and the views are amazing. We have guests that stay year after year as they so enjoy that oceanfront experience. I am sorry to hear that you lost the coin toss, that must have been disappointing. In our condo pictures, advertisement, and descriptive lease agreement, we share that we offer one king bed in the master bedroom and in the guest room a queen bed with a twin. Unfortunately, the queen bed does not measure to be as large as a king bed. We also have a pullout sofa in the family room that you could have used. We usually have two people stay for longer periods of time and want a place for families when they visit over the weekend or a friend from out of town. We offer something for any size family, big or small.
You stayed with us just days before we gutted and completely remodeled our kitchen so along with the other couple you split the cost of your stay with, you received a rate reflective of that as we had some hurricane repair about to take place. I tried to reach you before and have tried after your stay to discuss this but continue to receive no contact from you in return. If our guests experience something such as a drain that is slow or a five inch section of ceiling paint that peeled above the sink, it is always best to let me know while you are there. I would have taken care of for you, as I have a plumber who is minutes away.
As far as our rental agreement we have only had great experiences with our guests ( never had to keep a security deposit!) as we share our expectations. When you tell others in advance that smoking indoors is not permitted or animals (that lay on bedding/ furniture) need to stay at home, all future guests ( with allergies especially) are appreciative too. People enjoy staying as we have high expectations for our place and for our guests enjoyment. When the bar is low and and there are no standards it usually does not work out very well for anyone involved. My current guest is enjoying the condo for their 2nd time back so thank you for abiding by the simple lease requests so all future guests can enjoy.
New years get away
Great place to stay. Owners were very quick to respond/react to requests. Thanks
Location was perfect!
It was an older place but we'll kept. The condo was very nice and just right for our family.
Awesome week at the beach.!
The property is very nice, the owners were very helpful, and the residents were friendly and helpful with suggestions on shopping. The condo was clean, very comfortable and functional. Although the kitchen was a bit dated, everything worked and cookware was plentiful. We even baked cookies. When the grandkids visited we had a great time in the pool and on the beach. The pool so close to the ocean, and the boardwalk along the sea wall are awesome. I loved the screened porch! And really, is there a better view? I don't think so. We even saw a SpaceX launch!
Thank you so much for writing a few words about our property. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Watching a rocket launch from the condo is definitely a great bonus!
I do want to add that while the kitchen is original to the condo, the oven, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher are all new appliances. We have also opened up the kitchen wall so you have a larger ocean view while in the kitchen.
Thank you again, we are glad you had a great stay and we hope to host you again during your next visit to the beach Jennifer
This condo is in an older building - nothing new or fancy. Very quiet, very safe, very comfortable. Great for our family.
Kayaking in Manatee Cove and out on the Indian River were highlights for us.
The view was beautiful!
The beach was clean and you could walk for miles in either direction.
There are rocks in the surf line as you enter the water so be aware.
The pool area is well maintained.
Thank you so much for your review of our home. We appreciate the kind words and would love to host you again soon.
Just want to clarify the word rocks for any future guests. The beach is flat sand, but sometimes some smooth coral is exposed depending on if there was a storm that washed sand from the beach etc. When the tide is out it is easy to see if flat or not. I am happy to email photos to show visual pictures if this comment is a concern. Myself and my 3 children as well as other guests and condo residents all walk through the sand, boogie board and swim in the water.
Thank you again for staying!
Great vacation rental
Wonderful week at the beach. Jennifer was always very quick to reply to our emails / txts or phone calls.
We had two college students with us and they really enjoyed just sitting around for a week. They did rent jet skis nearby along with all of us going on a airboat ride. Just about every type of restaurant you could imagine is within 10 miles. Shopping as well. Very clean, and quiet beach. Everybody we saw both in the condo complex and on the beach all greeted us with smiles. The unit is very spacious a an excellent value. Sometimes photos "lie" with regard to room size. These rooms were all larger than I thought they were based on just the photos. After talking to Jennifer, I got the impression that a kitchen remodel is coming soon although the microwave, fridge, and cook-top all appeared to be pretty up-to-date already. When we are going to be back in this area in the future, we will definitely rent this unit again.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we would love to host you again in the future.
